Storyline

Aimi and her father move into an old, apartment building and learn quickly that things are not normal here. The landlord warns Aimi and her father of the curfew. First, all residents must cross the rope in front of the property by midnight. Second, no one can move out until a new tenant arrives. Those brave enough to break the rules are unmercifully killed by a mysterious force. Aimi begins to see visions of a girl that doesn't exist. She learns that a girl named Ai lived here 30 years ago before she vanished one day on her way home from school. Aimi is driven to find out more about her. She learns that Ai wasn't abducted, but in fact came back to the building the day she disappeared. Can Aimi learn the horrible truth of what happened to Ai? And what is the dark, disturbing secret that the two girls share? Written by PWalsh

Scarry one.
22 June 2008 | by (Chennai, India.) – See all my reviews

I started liking Japanese horrors from 'the grudge'.. I have seen the ring in the English version but still like to see the original 'ringu'. Since the language is Japanese you have to follow the story by the subtitles. But that did not deviate me much.

In those good Japanese horror lists this haunted apartment can surely be added. It is not as horrific as Grudge. But different. No great special effects, no cheap tricks to jump you out of the seat. But certainly the story does as it unfolds into the apartments.

One teen girl Aimi, and her father move in to an apartment after the girl's mother was dead in a car accident. The apartment complex they moved in is the haunted one by a girl's ghost who died of the same age. And the curse that surrounds the apartment and the mystery behind it. The script is the best thing that makes the movie stand. Acting, photography, music and direction are all supporting the script and brought to a good level.

There are no unnecessary gore into the scenes. But the script is good and thrilling until the end. Even the music is played not to scare but to aid the story. The ending was an unexpected shock which I could not guess it at all. If you are a fan of horror stories and is OK with not much of gory effects then you'll definitely like it.
